I’m feeling slightly less grumpy since my last post. My new method of ‘when I get grumpy & moody do something that makes me happy’ seems to be working. Be it a walk, smoking a cigarette, consuming a chocolate bar or even going to watch some stand-up comedy.
I did a bit of a spring clean of my room today and thought I’d get rid of some clothes. I discovered that a lot of my trousers and jeans, that I had not worn for a couple of months, were at least two sizes too big for me. Although I can’t see it I must have lost weight, unless someone has been creeping into my house and altering my clothes in the dead of night like some perverted version of The Elves & The Shoemaker.
It seems like the old appetite suppressant method seems to work for me. Basically it consists of me drinking a lot of glasses of water to stop me getting so bloody hungry all the time and skipping the odd meal which I know a lot of people don’t approve of, trust me, I could do with skipping a meal or two!
I received an email last night from Roadrunner Records. I signed up to their mailing list and they send me free stuff every now and again. The email was telling me about a list that they had compiled of the top 20 under rated albums. I have copied the list below.
20. Pink Floyd – “Pulse”
19. Bloodbath – “Resurrection Through Carnage”
18. Starkweather – “Murder in Technicolor”
17. Bad Religion – “Recipe for Hate”
16. Aerosmith – “Rocks”
15. All That Remains – “This Darkened Heart”
14. Only Living Witness – “Prone Mortal Form”
13. Gojira – “From Mars to Sirius”
12. Opeth – “Still Life”
11. Wintersun – “Wintersun”
10. St. Vitus – “V”
09. Type O Negative – “Origin of the Feces”
08. Tool – “Opiate”
07. Mr. Bungle – “California”
06. Death – “Symbolic”
05. Far – “Water & Solutions”
04. Megadeth – “Youthanasia”
03. Fear Factory – “Soul of a New Machine”
02. Pantera – “The Great Southern Trendkill”
01. Faith No More – “Angel Dust”
This is not a list of the best albums, but albums that were not as appreciated as they should have been and do not get the credit they deserve.
I’m going to finish now and get back to stalking Thes. Now where did I leave my nightvision goggles? 😛
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
